Up on the roof on our design build and renovation project

The stone work on our extension is going well now with layer after layer being created each day. I spent the weekend walking around the space visualizing where everything is going and trying to work out where I would add additional lighting etc.

After a bit of clambering I managed to get up onto the bedroom floor above the kitchen. It really gives you an idea of the space and even without a tape measure in my hand I could visualize where the shower and bath will be positioned. It’s all very exciting now: I can’t wait for the really lovely work on the interiors to begin. I have been keeping an eye on the auctions and had earmarked a few pieces to go and view but I have been sensible and put it off – we won’t be ready for the type of mirrors and chairs I have my eye on for months yet!
